    FIBA Announces New Rules Changes Effective October 2017

    FIBA, the international governing body for the sport of basketball, has finalized the 2017 basketball rulebook that took effect on October 1. All changes are highlighted in yellow or blue. There are significant changes to the travelling rule, unsportsmanlike fouls as well as to equipment in terms of headgear and undergarments. MABO will be reviewing rule changes at all upcoming clinics.
